title
Rocky Amaretto is theatrical improv group that does not play between the lines. We love to use our personal intimate stories, unexpected or abstract forms, unusual and fascinating characters, grotesque styles and meta-improv whenever applicable. We have a strong believe that good improv theatre goes straight to the heart, whether it is light, dark, dramatic, abstract or funny. The group was founded in 2011 based on the idea that acting techniques taught in acting school also work amazingly well whilst improvising stories. From there on a theatrical quest pursued in which we keep on digging deeper in both content and form.

Based in Utrecht, The Netherlands, we have players from Utrecht, Leiden, De Bilt and Amsterdam, that have either a theatrical professional background, or an intensive theatrical experience for decades.

We can play in either Dutch or English.

Formats

Momentarily we play the following formats:

 

Family
No relationships go deeper than family relations. (Grand)parents, children, siblings,
they know each other’s habit and can finish each other’s sentences – but do they also understand each other? They constantly rub each other either the right or the wrong way. Love and hate sleep in the same bed. That is why most drama, both in theater and in real life, is family drama. Rocky aims for recognizability in both characters, relations as situations, in a long form with the family as the main character.

 

Rocky fights it out!
We kick off with a true story surrounding the show’s theme by one of the players, then opening up the dialogue with the audience.
These stories will be translated to an impactful collage of scenes in diverse theatrical styles. Sometimes we will find the obvious, sometimes a hidden gem. It may be raw, it may be hilarious, it may be dramatic, but always fierce. Prepare for a ride.
See video.

 

Beautiful Things
Five players, one poet, one poem. ‘Beautiful things’ is a collage of scenes, that will deepen, widen, shorten or turn the poem inside out.
